Apple iPhone XR Review

Score: 82 / 100

Apple iPhone XR is an impressive phone released back in the year 2018, which features a really big 6.1-inches screen, an extremely fast 64-bits Hexa-Core processing unit clocking at 2.49 gigahertz, and 2 cameras, a 12 MP back camera and a 7 mega-pixels front side camera. But let's get into a bit more detail.

This time, it seems like Apple forgot about optimizing the weight in this 6.84 ounces cellphone. This phone is quite a compact device, given that it packs a 6.1" display and it's only 5.94 inches long. Being just 0.33" thick,this cellphone is thin and practical. Apple sells this cellphone in lots of color options like black, blue, red, rose gold, white and yellow. This cellphone construction is a mix of Glass and Aluminum .

Apple packed the Apple iPhone XR with an astonishing 6.1 inches display, and a resolution of 828 x 1792 , providing this phone with a high level graphic quality.

Apple equipped the iPhone XR with a Apple A12 Bionic APL1W81 (7 nm) system chip, backed up by an extremely fast 2490 MHz Hexa-Core 64 bits processor and a great 3 GB RAM memory. A key advantage of this phone is its astonishing 64 GB internal memory and while it doesn't come with an external memory slot, it is still enough to install hundreds of applications without even thinking about how much storage capacity is left.

This phone features two cameras, a 12 MP back facing camera and a 7 mega-pixels front camera. Its back facing camera has a maximum f/1.8 aperture so it can capture great photographs even in dark situations. This phone also films 4K 3840x2160 videos at 60 fps, and slow motion videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 240 fps. Additionally, this phone's camera also features auto-focus and time lapse video.

This cellphone packs a huge 2942 mAh Li - Ion non-replaceable battery that provides this device an incredibly long battery life. An issue to take into consideration is that the iPhone XR's battery is non-removable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to last shorter, even though with such a great capacity you will probably replace this phone before that happens.

This phone features Wi-Fi connection (which it can share with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G ultra fast connection and also HSPA+ connection type (a lower speed 4G network) and fast 3G internet connection, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This device has two Nano SIM cards so it's able to work with two different phone lines or carriers at the same time.

The Apple iPhone XR also comes with lots of useful features like Facial unlock, Wireless charging system, NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your cellphone close to another NFC device or tag), Bluetooth and GPS (Global Positioning System), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This cellphone is being sold for $ 749, not a good offer for a cellphone this level. This cellphone is probably the right one it doesn't matter whether you want it to take many photos, will use it as a gaming cellphone, need a phone to majorly use social networks and internet browsing or need a work cellphone. Apple packs this cellphone with Documentation , Lightning to USB Cable, USB Power Adapter and EarPods with Lightning Connector.
